About the program

The undergraduate degree in Economics offers four areas of expertise: Financial Engineering, Applied Microeconomics, Applied Macroeconomics and Political Economy, allowing students to obtain the certification in two areas, as long as the student studies the compulsory subjects of the chosen courses.

Considered by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (MEC) as the best undergraduate program in Economics in Brazil, the course features an innovative methodology, which develops important skills for the labor market, in addition to having a highly qualified faculty of researchers and professionals with market and government experience.

Why choose this program?

The course is based on four pillars of training as an economist:

  1. Solid mathematical foundation, which allows the theoretical instruments of economic models to be incorporated.
  2. Development of logical and abstract reasoning, improving students’ analytical and critical capacity, as well as the ability to acquire and generate new knowledge.
  3. Broad cultural and historical education, allowing economic issues to be understood in their historical and social context.
  4. Practical experience, involving experimentation, research, debates, exercises, games, lab work, projects and internships. Students develop their ability to make decisions and solve problems in diverse and constantly changing conditions. The course’s structure and dynamics guarantee the development of professionals capable of acting and holding the best positions at private and public institutions, in Brazil and elsewhere.Exchange Program
